Today brings word of more changes at the New York office (which will soon begin its transition from an agency headquarters to a fancy hotel): an unknown number of staffers are now unemployed. Here’s the agency’s official statement:
“As with any agency of our size, there are always staff changes occurring. However, we are not currently nor do we plan on executing any large scale layoffs at R/GA.”
Tipsters claim that the shift involves several “executives and senior folks” and that the group in question may include Nick Katsivelos, managing director of technology and strategy. CTO John Mayo-Smith was not laid off; he resigned to join a non-profit.
We can provide one important detail: the pink slip party will go down at The Frying Pan on West 26th Street and the Hudson River at 6 PM tonight.
